Gary Climbs Mountains

Journey to climb the seven summits

Meet Gary

St Augustine said, “The world is an open book, and those who do not travel read only one page.” If this true you should consider Gary Ervin well read. 

Gary’s life and adventures have taken him across continents, through deserts, into the wilds of Alaska, and even to the top of the world’s highest mountains. 

His story is both fascinating and motivating, and his love of life is evident at every step along the way.
